## An S4 Class to represent a fitted TERGM by MCMC-MLE

### Description

An S4 class to represent a fitted TERGM by MCMC-MLE.

### Usage

## S4 method for signature 'mtergm'
show(object)

## S4 method for signature 'mtergm'
coef(object, invlogit = FALSE, ...)

## S4 method for signature 'mtergm'
nobs(object)

timesteps.mtergm(object)

## S4 method for signature 'mtergm'
summary(object, ...)


### Arguments

 object An mtergm object. invlogit Apply inverse logit transformation to the estimates and/or confidence intervals? That is, \frac{1}{1 + \exp(-x)}, where x is the respective value. ... Currently not in use.

### Details

mtergm objects result from MCMC-MLE-based estimation of a TERGM via the mtergm function. They contain the coefficients, standard errors, and p-values, among other details.

### Functions

• show,mtergm-method: Show the coefficients of an mtergm object.

• coef,mtergm-method: Return the coefficients of an mtergm object.

• nobs,mtergm-method: Return the coefficients of an mtergm object.

• timesteps.mtergm: Return the number of time steps saved in an mtergm object.

• summary,mtergm-method: Return the coefficients of an mtergm object.
